Who was wounded by gunfire while riding in the presidential limousine when John F. Kennedy was assassinated?

Governor Connally

On November 22, 1963, John Connally was seriously wounded while riding in President Kennedy’s car at Dealey Plaza in Dallas when the president was assassinated.

Governor Connally, riding in the same limousine in a seat in front of the President and three inches more to the left than the President, was also seriously injured but survived. Doctors later stated that after the Governor was shot, his wife pulled him onto her lap, and the resulting posture helped close his front chest wound (which was causing air to be sucked directly into his chest around his collapsed right lung).
